Over the next year, about 8,000 women who rely on Planned Parenthood as their main source of healthcare will pass through the doors. Many of them will step straight off the bus at Rice Street and Minnesota Avenue. Some will ride down from nearby Century College. For residents of the immediate neighborhood, where 70 percent of people need some sort of low-income support for healthcare, the clinic's opening means shorter lines for basic services. Octogenarians Ray and Le Schreurs normally volunteer their time fighting through crowds of anti-abortion protesters to escort patients to their doctors. Le leads the way. Ray, who has a harder time controlling his anger, follows behind. "They'd yell things like, 'Old man, you're going to die pretty soon. What are you going to say to St. Peter when you get up there. '" Ray recalls. He'd wear headphones to tune out the prayer bead-brandishing agitators, mostly hired help working for local ministers. The majority of the patients they'd escort up to the clinic don't even need abortions, he points out. But even when it comes to the three percent who do, "They have no idea what goes on inside a woman if she makes the choice for abortion. Hanna Hockberger, Sydney Spreck and Sarah Legried are all Planned Parenthood patients. Aged 19-21, they're armed to the teeth with birth control — IUDs in the uterus, implants in the arms. With sex education in schools often leaving much to the imagination, the women turned to Planned Parenthood for pregnancy prevention measures beyond abstinence and condoms. Spreck, who recently graduated from Stillwater High School, says her relatively wealthy, conservative community provided her with a fairly mediocre sex ed experience. "If somebody got pregnant, they would just disappear from school and then nobody would know," she says. "You're left to wonder, 'Did they get pregnant. Did they go to rehab. With her local family doctor, she felt like she had to make up some excuse just to go on the pill, like claiming to be depressed. She needed the pill to regulate her hormones, she said, when she just didn't want to get pregnant with a child she couldn't possibly raise. In the midst of a fiery political battle over public funding for Planned Parenthood, CEO Sarah Stoesz made a cursory nod to the highly edited hidden video footage released by the anti-abortion rights group Center for Medical Progress. On the abortion debate, she alluded only to. Source: www.citypages.com

Water main breaks and boil water advisories are frequent occurrences for families in Kanawha County. Recently, West Virginia American Water put in a new system to detect hidden, underground leaks before they develop into bigger problems. "It’s definitely speeding up the process,” said Dave Bowles, the operations supervisor at WVAW. The water company installed a new acoustic-based leak detection system along a 10-mile stretch of the Kanawha Valley last December. Since then, the technology has been able to alert engineers of at least 60 leaks. This June, the system was able to identify a problem on a 36-inch concrete transmission line on the West Side.

'A toned post-pregnancy physique like the model in Bugaboo's picture IS possible': Woman who snapped back to a size 8 within weeks says it's 'a choice' (but she is a personal trainer) Shakira Martin speaks in response to mothers slamming Bugaboo... Bugaboo, the Amsterdam-based high-end buggy company, shared an image from Vogue Netherlands, which shows model Ymre Stiekema pushing her daughter Lymée in the £515 ($800) pram. The image sent commenters into a frenzy, with the first comment, which read: 'I also often jog in a bikini', quickly gaining 600 likes. One mother responding to the first comment wrote: 'I do too. But I also need a half roll of duck tape for jiggle maintenance. However, one mother from London, who managed to snap back to a size 8 physique just eight weeks after giving birth, has hit back at the comments - and insists it is possible to emulate model Ymre's physique. Speaking to FEMAIL, Shakira Martin, 27, who gave birth six months ago, said: 'I recently became a mother myself and having a strong background in fitness, I was eager to get back into shape as soon as possible. 'As you can see from my pictures, a toned post-pregnancy physique is possible with just a little bit of determination and a lot of hard work. 'It is tough with a newborn but it is a choice and if you really want it, it is possible. It's just about getting creative and prioritising a healthy lifestyle. Shakira's comments came in response to those from journalist and parenting blogger Nicola Bonn, who said of the Vogue images: 'Is this woman for real. (I say as I choke into my lukewarm coffee). I have no problem with the bikini or the fact that's she's jogging, but where's her floppy belly and stretch. Source: www.dailymail.co.uk
